Ilmatar: The Weight Of The World - Lyrics

In primeval times, a maiden
Beauteous Daughter of The Ether
Passed for ages her existence
In the great expanse of Heaven
O'er her prairies yet enfolded
Wearisome the maiden growing
Her existence sad and hopeless
Thus alone to live for ages
In the infinite expanses
In the far outstretching spaces
In a solitude of Ether
She descended the ocean."
Sweet wind, Daughter of Air
Daughter of Nature, Mother of All
She beared entire world's weight
She beared wisdom's weight
Seven hundred years she wandered
Ages nine of man's existence
Swam the ocean hither, thither
Could not rise above the waters
She is alone, completely
Distressed by her womb's weight
She would have liked to stay
In the pure air's clarity
"Woe is me, my life hard-fated
Woe is me, in this my travail
Into what I now fallen?"
It's so cold and terribly wet
Torn apart by her yoke's weight
Ethereal, evanescent, wind maiden
In pain she perceives herself
How could this maiden
Bear the world's weight
She had no perceiving
Of time and space
They had no importance
She's so close to solitude
But she heals it with creation
I'm not able to create
Anything but fear
